Placemaking App for Humans in the City - People Building Places
Placemaking is about people building places that are mindful of human needs, provide a sense of community and belonging, and draw people together for recreation, relaxation and enterprise. Placemaking rejects the all too common idea that cities are merely a collection of iconic structures, or that the public realm should be dominated by transportation systems.
My idea is to create a mobile Placemaking app that allows people to provide feedback on places in their city - whether it be a greenspace or a shopping centre - adding information and ideas about why they visit a place, whether it meets their needs and expectations, and allows them to offer suggestions that would improve the human experience of that place. Building a city is an organic process, and the data collected can be used to improve public spaces, accessibility to them, and turn them into places where people love to be.
